Massachusetts woman has big plans after hitting it big on $1 million state lottery scratch ticket



A Massachusetts woman already has some big plans after hitting some big money recently on a state lottery scratch ticket.

According to the Massachusetts State Lottery, Edna Soares has won a $1 million prize in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s “Emeralds 50X” instant ticket game.

Soares, who is from New Bedford, chose the cash option on her prize and received a one-time payment of $650,000 (before taxes). She has multiple plans for her winnings, including paying for her daughter’s college, paying off her own college loans, and buying her dad a truck.

She purchased her winning ticket at Golden Food Mart located at 1043 Rodman Street in Fall River. The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for its sale of this ticket.

    Congrats to Edna but alas This state already punished you for taking the lump sum payment and will punish you again with taxes doubledipping at it’s finest.
